Description:The Texas Center for Disability Studies engages in a variety of system and individual interventions to promote the independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

Disability Studies is a relatively new, interdisciplinary field focused on the social and cultural context of disability. This field considers disability as a social minority group with an emphasis on the way in which disability is constructed culturally, politically, and economically, rather than the traditional emphasis on the physiology of impairment.

By working with professionals, para-professionals, policy-makers, students, and other members of the community, the TCDS works to provide services, supports, and assistance for people with disabilities and their families to promote their independence, productivity, integration, and inclusion."

Quote from Barbara Jordan: "One thing is clear to me: We, as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves."
